It's a busy park with homeless people and children playing in a dirty fountain?! I really do not see what all the hype is about... Just my opinion!

You can see many things around the park, that are very interesting, but the park doesn't offer much to see besides the sculpture.

Not sure why this is getting great reviews. We didn't even stop to go into the park. It looked like lots of homeless people and the love sculpture is not near as big as it looks in photos. Also very busy traffic area around there. So we just snapped a photo as we drove by.

Definitely worth a quick stop for some great pictures! The surrounding area is lovely too... City Hall across the street and all the super scaled "toy" playing pieces on the other square across the street are so fun.

It was on my "must visit" list, but it wasn't overly impressive. It appears to have been neglected and overrun by skateboarders.

This park never disappoints. It's just so relaxing, and you're likely to find hidden treasures, like artists showcasing their work. I went home with a terrific original painting!

Cool LOVE statue, but it's much smaller in person than I'd expected. Not the nicest side of town, and mostly young kids and homeless ppl in the vicinity. Luckily a policeman on a segue was on patrol. Huge fountain was spraying which mad it difficult to get a dry picture, but all in all it was worth the experience.

If you expect to see a park, there is none. Fountain in the middle of downtown which could be rescuing on the hot afternoons. Hold on to your purse and plan to see some more around.

LOVE statue is much smaller that I expected. There is a water feature there to observe. Some garden planters with varying flora. Other than that...not much else. Worth a walk by on your way to something else, but not a destination.
